Anybody else going?

That's when I am going. SWMBO is taking me with ours kiddos - 9 yrs and 16 months. Last year it was pretty calm - most ragers seem to go on Friday night when you have to be 21 to get in. SWMBO doesn't drink so I think she will be willing to stick around for a few hours though...

Brewtopia - in the year or two you could get tent space.

Not sure who else went but I had an excellent time. I was amazed at how long we were able to stay without my baby getting too tired (or me and my wife). I had some excellent beer and met some great people.

I had forgotten to post this earlier. Dogfish Head was there pouring their Aprihop through a Randall with hops and fresh apricots in it. It was actually pretty good, much better than I remember it tasting.

I saw that - wasn't very impressed... but the hype had me ready for something really amazing. I wanted the 90min. through some C-hops, ya know? Got there early enough to have many of the cask ales left from the night before and a few I haven't seen before.

Good time -

The cask smoked porter from Diamond Knot was excellent. I too was amazed that DFH's line was one of the longest one in the bunch.

I really enjoyed Baron's Rauchbier also

Did not try a smoked beer - never had one.

I spent my day chasing hops.
